Northern airline baggage rules can trump others
CBC News
There's good news for northerners who have paid extra baggage fees when transferring to other airlines: the Canadian Transportation Agency has introduced a new policy that says whenever you book a flight that includes routes on two or more airlines, the baggage policy for the first airline on the ticket applies for the whole flight.

Toronto Star
Walmart Canada is implementing a $50 minimum order for free standard online shipping, and shoppers can thank Target Canada's demise for the change, a retail expert says. "It's a fall-out of easing competition," said Schulich School of Business marketing professor Detlev Zwick of Walmart's move.
